Text: UOL03770 31-Dec-2099 About the SnT SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services. We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent. We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place! The Parallel computing and Optimisation Group (PCOG) is led by Prof. Pascal Bouvry and Dr. Grégoire Danoy as deputy head. PCOG conducts research on parallel computing and optimization techniques, in particular how different species may co-evolve taking local decisions while ensuring global objectives, to tackle large and difficult problems. The main application domains are security, trust and reliability; reliable scheduling and routing on new generations of networks; sustainable development and systems biomedicine; Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAV), Smart Cities. Detailed information about the group is available at http://pcog.uni.lu/ Your Role This is a fully funded position for 3 years (extendable to an additional 4 th year) in the ADARS (Automating the Design of Autonomous Robot Swarms) financed by the FNR. The ADARS project aims to propose a unique approach to automatically generate behaviours for distributed aerospace and space systems (DASS) thanks to a cross-fertilisation between multi-objective optimisation and machine learning techniques. ADARS will demonstrate through specifically designed software simulations and real field tests with multi-rotor drones, that state-of-the-art results can be obtained on two challenging DASS applications: swarm formation for a counter UAV system and swarm formation of small satellites for asteroid observation. The successful candidate will work under the academic supervision of Dr. Grégoire Danoy (University of Luxembourg) and join a strong and motivated research team of SnT. The position holder will be required to perform the following tasks: Contribute to the ADARS project Carry out research in the predefined areas; Disseminate results in top scientific venues; Present results in well-known international conferences and workshops Your Profile Qualification: The candidate should possess an M.Sc./M.Eng.
